Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Handcrafted with cutting-edge winemaking worthy of our highest quality grapes, the 2009 vintage boasts exceptionally powerful yet elegant flavors. The highly saturated aromas and expansive, richly textured flavors brim with deep blackberry and cassis expression.

Winemaker's Notes

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot

Average vine age is 37 years. In order to retain the advantage of older vines, the renewal of the vines is not done in lots, but periodically throughout the vineyard. Each vine that is replaced is identified by a yellow plastic ring, making them easily identifiable so they can be harvested before the main harvest in order to avoid any confusion. This isolation of the young vines continues for 8 years. The 124 acres produce around 20,000 cases.

    Medium-bodied, with cedar, anise and sage-laced cherry and berry flavors that fall into the simple-but-pleasing category. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 14,000 cases made.
